(STURGIS) – Due to forecasted snow amounts of three to five inches, the City of Sturgis has issued a city wide snow removal emergency.

The snow removal emergency goes into effect at 7 PM today. Any vehicle parked on the roadway after that time will be towed.

By City ordinance, during a declared snow removal emergency, parking is prohibited on all City streets. Any vehicle that is parked in violation is subject to being issued a citation with a fine of $50, and may be towed with all expense from the towing charged to the vehicle owner.

The parking prohibition is effective until the snow storm ends and your street has been cleared of snow between two successive street intersections, or if the City terminates the declaration with a public announcement.
